Louisville beats Duke to reach Final Four

INDIANAPOLIS — With tears in their eyes and Kevin Ware in their hearts, there was no way Louisville was losing this game.

Russ Smith scored 23 points, Gorgui Dieng had 14 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks and top-seeded Louisville put aside the shock from Ware's gruesome leg injury to beat Duke 85-63 on Sunday and earn a second straight trip to the Final Four.

It will be some time before the Cardinals can celebrate this victory, however. Ware, who's played a key role in Louisville's 14-game winning streak, was hospitalized after appearing to snap his lower right leg with 6:33 left in the first half.
